January 27th, 2018 · Leave a Comment

Freehold Communities recently announced The Falls, a new neighborhood within Shearwater offering several new amenities and the addition of a new builder to the Shearwater team. Dream Finders Homes is the newest builder to offer homes in Shearwater, the master-planned residential community on County Road 210 in northern St. Johns County. Shearwater’s newest neighborhood includes new home sites in a variety of sizes, extensive nature trails, a four-acre park, a community garden, and dog parks. 

“While planning for our newest neighborhood, our research indicated that current residents and future homebuyers continue to desire opportunities to build relationships with neighbors and connect with nature,” said Suzanne Maddalon, Vice President of Marketing, Freehold Communities. “Shearwater continues to meet this market demand by introducing new amenities, including an activity-focused park, two new dog parks and a community garden.”

Shearwater’s newest and most expansive park, Falls Park, will be centrally located in the heart of Shearwater and offer a variety of outdoor opportunities including a lake overlook pavilion, shaded picnic pavilion, ponds, a tot lot, an event lawn, and multipurpose paved pathways. Shearwater is also opening the Falls loop trail, a nature trail running through Shearwater’s naturally preserved habitat. The new trails and pathways will all connect to Shearwater’s current trail system to enhance the community’s overall trail network. The community’s first dog park area will include two fenced parks, one for larger dogs and one for smaller dogs. Finally, the community garden will have raised beds available for residents to plant flowers, herbs and vegetables year-round. All of Shearwater’s residents will have access to these new amenities in The Falls.

“Since opening in 2015, Shearwater has become one of the fastest-growing communities in St. Johns County,” said Andrew Smith, Division President – Southeast, Freehold Communities. “We attribute much of that success to Shearwater’s unique lifestyle program centered around healthy living and recreational opportunities, as well as our commitment to providing prospective homebuyers with a diverse range of home styles, sizes and prices from quality homebuilders.”

In addition to new amenities, Dream Finders Homes will build new homes on 50 ft. lots in The Falls. The first model home is the Willow plan, which has three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms in 2,344 sq. ft. Base pricing for Dream Finders Homes will start at $270,990. The Willow plan will start at $304,990. Dream Finders Homes is now preselling and the model home will be complete in Spring 2018.

One of Shearwater’s current builder partners, David Weekley Homes, will also be expanding into The Falls.
